R’lyeh Roulette IV
We’re back and we’re spinning the wheel of misfortune. R’lyeh Roulette is not a game to be entered into casually. While you might not place bets in the normal manner, there is still much at... The post R’lyeh Roulette IV appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

Call of Cthulhu Deities — Shudde M’ell, Yibb-Tstll and Bugg-Shash
We’re back and we’re suckling. This is more difficult than you might think, at least when Yibb-Tstll is involved. Even once we get past all those pesky nightgaunts, there’s the whole, um, moving target aspect...

Media Catch-Up
We’re back and we’re consuming. Mostly, we’re consuming media. At least that’s the consumption we feel happiest talking about in public. Also, the digestion of media tends to lead to less dyspepsia, bloating and flatulence... The post Media Catch-Up appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

The Ocean in Call of Cthulhu
We’re back and we’re enjoying a nice seaside holiday. Of course, when most people talk about the seaside, they mean the bit that’s on land. Somehow, we’ve ended up in the wetter part. Maybe that’s... The post The Ocean in Call of Cthulhu appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

Robert Bloch and the Cthulhu Mythos

Psycho (1960)

Delusions in Call of Cthulhu
We’re back and we’re rolling to disbelieve. Honestly, the world around us just becomes weirder and weirder with every passing year. A lot of this is probably down to age, but we can’t discount some... The post Delusions in Call of Cthulhu appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

The Shadow Over Innsmouth – Sequels and Adaptations
